to pretend I haven't smelled the poo

DS has a friend round for tea they are both 6. I can smell something bad coming from his friend... I have checked his shoes/clothes and don't think they have walked in anything nasty so think child may have pooed himself. Child doesn't seem bothered about it in the slightest, he is running round having fun. So AIBU to just ignore it? He is due to go home in about an hour. I know I should probably speak to him and then clean him up but the thought makes me want to vom blush

Ring his mum and ask her what she wants to do if you are certain it is him

I wouldnt want it sat in my fabrics etc... But OTOH i also wouldn't want the awkwardness of it...

He's six - have you asked him?

If he has pooed himself yes you would be very unreasonable to leave him in soiled clothes.

The poo might fall out, and spread itself all over your house envy <-- vom

You must do^ something^, even if it's only to engineer a game of musical statues .

Poor little lad.
Phone his mum/dad but don't let him fester in his own poo for an hour ffs!
Why would you even consider it?!

RyleDup Thu 08-Nov-12 16:59:09

You need to sort it out. Sorry.

mrsscoob Thu 08-Nov-12 17:00:02

I know I'm horrible, oh god i'm going to have to do something about this aren't I, ok wish me luck envy

Just ask him if he needs the loo, phone his mum and tell her what has happened. You can't leave him, the poor little thing will get a sore bottom

Yabvu to ignore it. Take him to the bathroom and ask him and clean him up if necessary. Cant believe you would even think its ok to leave him in pooey pants for an hour!

scentednappyhag Thu 08-Nov-12 17:01:09

Can't you call his parents to get him picked up early?

EugenesAxe Thu 08-Nov-12 17:01:21

No I think if it was my child I would be mortified he'd done it (if that's the case) but I would also be cross if it hadn't been sorted if it was obvious.

I'd probably get you a bottle to say thanks but I wouldn't expect my child to be roaming in his own crap....

Luck smile
And rubber gloves, nose peg, sick bole ect...

FFS, get a grip and clean the bairn up if he needs it.

How could anyone think its ok to leave a child covered in shite, sort him out and give him some clean clothes to put on.

Poor child.

If he's six, I don't see why you should get involved in cleaning him up. I have a 6 yo ds and if he pooed himself (which he WOULDN'T!) I would send him to have a shower, and if a shower was unavailable, to clean up with a damp flannel. You probably should give him some clean pants though.

DragonMamma Thu 08-Nov-12 17:07:22

YABabitU but I sympathise because there's nothing worse than a pair of pooey's that 'where do I start?' conversation you enter in your head.

Good luck!

HecatePropylaea Thu 08-Nov-12 17:18:18

It's more likely that he's been for one and not wiped himself. If he's sitting with a poo in his pants it's going to really hurt his bum so you'll have to do something. Plus it's likely to come out all over your floor and furniture and will be a bigger cleaning up job.

If you really can't deal with it (and other people's children's poo does smell so much worse than that of your own kids grin ), call his mum, say you think he might have had a little toilet accident and she needs to fetch him.

If it was your son would you want his friends parents to do something? your answer to that is what you need to do!

mrsscoob Thu 08-Nov-12 17:21:23

Ok it's done, it wasn't so bad in the end. It was more of a follow through than a full blown turd smile

Plastic bag, wipes, spare clothes, rubber gloves.

Go in bathroom, open window, stand child by toilet, gently take trousers and pants down. Sit child on toilet, remove soiled clothing to bag. Wipe child, place in clean clothing, wash hands, give child a hug. Job done.

Pls dont leave himsad

X posted, well done smile

mrsscoob Thu 08-Nov-12 17:28:42

I have, he's all cleaned up. I don't think I ever would have left him, think it was just momentary panic that made me post grin

mrsscoob Thu 08-Nov-12 17:29:12

X posted too and thanks smile
